Increase on Retirement, Separation Pay of Police Members Approved by NAPOLCOM
NAPOLCOM – The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) approved the increase on the retirement and separation pay of the Philippine National Police’s uniformed members.
Undeniably, the police got a risky job. They are in-charged of protecting not only their household but the citizens in their designated areas. They deal with different people every day and are sometimes tasked to be on duty while everyone is asleep.
Recently, a good news for the uniformed members of the PNP crossed the surface.
Based on the post on the social media account of The Visayan Daily Star, NAPOLCOM approved the increase on the retirement and separation pay of the uniformed members of the police.
Based on the Facebook, the NAPOLCOM which is led by chairman Eduardo Año approved the Resolution 2018-435. Año is also the officer-in-charge of the Department of Interior and Local Government.
Rogelio Casurao, the Vice Chairman and Executive Officer of the Commission, expressed that the family of a uniformed member of the PNP who died while on duty is previously entitled to a monthly annuity.
The said annuity is equal to 50% of the base and the longevity pay of the police. The person who died should have served for not less than 20 years.
Based on the social media post, following the approval of the NAPOLCOM, the PNP will now implement the computation on Republic Act 8551 Section 34. It is with regards to the retirement benefits of a uniformed member of the PNP.
It reportedly “grants the beneficiaries a monthly retirement pay of 50 percent of the base pay and longevity pay in the next grade higher than the permanent grade”.
Aside from the increase on the retirement and separation pay of the uniformed members of the Police, the NAPOLCOM also approved the recruitment of members. Through the Resolution 2018-437, 17,925 Police Officer 1 would be recruited.
Furthermore, according to the Vice Chairman of NAPOLCOM, the PNP will also recruit 10,000 civilians and 7, 925 new police officers.
